Approximately 98.64 percent of Americans will barbeque this weekend (that’s a fabricated statistic, but I don’t think I’m off by much) in celebration of Independence Day. Usually, I’m not the type to decorate for an afternoon grill session, choosing to focus all my energy on the food and booze, but for the 4th of July,…

There Is Nothing Better Than This Dancing Guy

As someone who is apparently not intelligent enough to follow the steps on my “Step Up Revolution” workout DVD, I’m in awe of the dancing in this clip from a 1964 episode of “The Judy Garland Show.” While the guys in the backline appear to be phoning it in a little bit, the guy u…

A Salsa-Filled Party Sombrero Is The Only Party Hat You’ll Ever Need

All due respect and praise to the genius that came up with the salsa hat prototype, seen here. Think about how many versions of this edible tortilla hat were created and then failed, spilling delicious salsa all over the wearer. And a salsa hat is a great hat to get the party started — you’ll…

Bad PR Move: No Uggos Allowed At Pretty People Party

Last night, Tiffany’s held a party hosted by photographers Scott Schuman and Garance Dore. The party was DJed by Beyonce’s little sister Solange.

This One Time Bob Hope Went to A Party At Salvador Dali’s House

It would seem that Surrealist artist Salvador Dali and Bob Hope wouldn’t travel in the same circles, but oh no, they do! Mr. Hope was once invited to a party at Dali’s house themed around guest’s worst nightmares. We’re guessing Hope’s worst nightmare was probably being at a Surrealist party, because the comedian appears none…

While You Were Out, Your Cats Were Throwing A Banger

I would be so stoked if I could be half as relaxed and mellow as the cat in the party hat in the bowl is. That guy doesn’t even raise a whisker at the party hat intrusion. In fact, all of these cats seem suspiciously laid back about wearing stupid human hats, given the general…

Let’s Meet Up At The Dog Disco Tonight

The ’70s were a wild ride, man. The dogs were going crazy. Everybody was dancing. The party never ended. And then the suddenly the ball dropped and it was the ’80s, and everybody was in banking. Total bummer, dude. [YouTube]…

How To Go To A Party Alone

It’s holiday time again, which for me means lots of parties to go to … solo. My first instinct is usually to try to snag a pal to bring with me to party crash, but recently, I was invited to a party where the host explicitly instructed guests not to bring a plus one. I…

How To Throw A Kick-Ass Party

Over the weekend I threw a big birthday bash for my husband’s 40th. It was the third party we’ve thrown in the last year — not counting small dinner parties — and about the tenth or so since I moved in almost three years ago, so I like to think I’ve learned a thing or two…

How To Avoid The Hidden Perils Of Independence Day Parties

Sure, sure, the Founding Fathers saved us from tyranny and taxation without representation blah, blah, blah. I doubt good old George Washington or jolly Jefferson realized the danger they were placing the future of American women in. Obama is protecting us from aliens attempting to enslave the human race, but who is going to protect…
